Dear Wizards of the Coast,

I heard about your recent exchange of e-mail with Pierre Grandmont in regards to reviving the Top Secret/SI espionage role-playing game. I would like to add my support and that of my website visitors. Put together a few more books at least, or even better, a revised game set, perhaps with some of the rule enhancements we’ve posted on the net!

Below is a list of currently active (i.e., updated in the last month or two, sometimes daily!) websites dealing with Top Secret/SI...

The Top Secret/S.I. Webring: http://www.webring.org/cgi-bin/webring?ring=tssi;list

 

THESE SITES ALONE HAVE HAD A COMBINED TOTAL OF 1280 HITS IN THE LAST THIRTY DAYS.

Bring our game back!

If you absolutely cannot, we’d love to hear some way you could support us, at least (such as: 1) granting us license to post the rules, so we can start teaching some new players online...; 2) re-issuing some of the old books that have become hard to find; or 3) giving us some old development materials, something to spruce up our sites with). I realize there are some legal issues here (I am a law student at Pepperdine, specializing in intellectual property) but keeping such a great game locked down is really a bummer for us all!

Sincerely,

Tom

TSSI Environments

 

P.S. I also invite you to attend the weekly Top Secret/S.I. chat session at the Excite community (Orion HQ link above): Fridays at noon, PST.
